New single & video are available now
Grammy-nominated OneRepublic has released their new single, “Runaway.” It is the first new track the band has released since their smash hit, “I Ain’t Worried,” which was featured in the blockbuster hit, Top Gun: Maverick and currently boasts over three billion streams.
In tandem with the single release, the group has debuted the official video for the song. The video made its global broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop, NickMusic and across MTV’s global network of channels, as well as on the Paramount Times Square billboards. Directed by Tomás Whitmore, the video was shot during their recent tour in Asia in eight Southeast Asian cities, including Hong Kong, Manila, Jakarta, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Taipei and Tokyo. The video features the band performing the new single atop the iconic Singaporean integrated resort Marina Bay Sands, featuring its 56 story high SkyPark Observation Deck and the resort’s newly refurbished world-class suites. It serves as the perfect backdrop, capturing the essence of travel and exploration shown in the “Runaway” video.
The video begins with the band boarding a plane to Asia, using the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II – letting the world fade away as they set to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Upon arrival in Asia, the video delivers a barrage of rapid fire travel clips – syncopated perfectly to the song’s driving uptempo energy.
Also this week, Ryan Tedder launched his Spotify Songwriter page, giving fans a new kind of glimpse into the work he has done with other major artists. The page showcases songs he has written such as “Halo” by Beyonce, “I Know Places” by Taylor Swift, “Sucker” by the Jonas Brothers, “Rumour Has It” by Adele, “Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis, “Angels Like You” by Miley Cyrus, and many more.
